After a trip to Japan I always look forward to seeing the guys at the Barge. The service is always good, the beers are very much welcomed too. I do not always eat here as there is a nice choice in Narita, however this time I just felt like a burger, and they did not let me down. There was... More

Amazingly huge place by Japanese standards. A kind of English pub with a Japanese theme ie fairy light and smoking allowed. I was suffering a bit of claustrophobia in Japan at this stage due to so many very small, uncomfortable places so it was enjoyable to come in here early for happy hour when it was quite to drink beer...

The Barge Inn is a pub away from home, but still very much as at home. Decorations are typical and there are a lot of things going on during weekends and holidays. The food served is mainly British but with a Japanese twist, making it a bit more exotic.

After 3 weeks in Japan, its great to call in and and have a nice pint, chat and some nice food. A very warm welcome as always and was great to see the guys again. The place is now fully open and I am glad I got there after the CRAZY Halloween party. Thanks again all. See you in March.

I found this place a good few years ago and it has now become a ritual treat for me on my last night in Japan. I visit once or twice year and stay in quite rural parts of Japan and enjoy going native with the food which is great. However, after a trek across Japan behind me and having checked... More

Stopped in for a beer on a rainy night. Front doors open so somewhat chilly inside. Not too busy but the smell of cigarette smoke was lingering in the air even with the front doors open. (Just like an English pub)! Had a snack which was reasonably priced. Enjoyed the speciality beer and the old English pub ambiance.

If you happen to be in Narita this is a great meeting place, it's the nearest thing to an English pub that you will find in the village. It's a large establishment serving a fine selection of beer, food, tv entertainment and pool tables. It has a relaxed atmosphere and I'd feel as comfortable going in on my own as... More

I'm my stop overs through Narita I have enjoyed everything from the home made beef pie, the burger, steak and whole chicken. All great comfort food for a weary... More
